St Johnstone defender Brad McKay has joined Dunfermline Athletic on loan until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old has only played four times since his summer move from Hearts, and has not featured since August.
Saints boss Tommy Wright said of McKay’s situation earlier this week: “He won’t just be going for the sake of it, we want the right team for him. He’s very much part of the squad here but he’s not been able to get into the team and we both feel he needs games.
“He came here from Hearts for that and he hasn’t played as much as he would’ve liked because of the way others are playing. He’s been working hard in training but needs to get playing again.
“Brad is still contracted to us for 18 months so he’s still very much our player and in our thoughts, but at this moment in time he needs football. If the right club comes in we’ll look at it, if not he’ll stay here and fight for a place.”
